Lace and Diamond Bootees

[color=blue]Morning! I found this pattern on KnitPicks. Has anyone made these? Or something similar. Do you think they would be difficult for a “newbie”? My neice is having her second baby in September I would love to give her something hand made :XX: [/color] :sunny:

One of my first projects was a pair of booties! Go for it, Stony! :thumbsup:

I second that. They look straightforward and what have you got to lose? Those are really cute!

[color=blue]Kelly when you order from KnitPicks is the delivery fairly prompt? I would love to order some stuff today :cheering: (I can tell this is going to be dangerous lol) Thanks! [/color]

I guess I need to read better. You can not just order the pattern/yarn. It is in a book of patterns. Oh, well will search for something similar. Any Ideas? Thanks! :sunny:

Why not order the book? The baby won’t go away and may need more clothing! (I am such an enabler. :oops: )

well there is that bootie pattern that someone posted on here that i think is ADORABLE but am afraid of cuz i avoid things that require more thought than a seed stitch scarf like the plague. let me see if i can find them cuz they were the first thing that made me think that i could set aside my aversion to patterns!

here it is. it is from our own KnitQueen!

[color=blue]Yup… I was afraid of that lol. A little encouragement and my finger just automatically goes to “add to cart” :rollseyes: I have no will power lol. [/color]

Knitpicks is pretty fast…If you order early today, I bet you’ll have it by the end of the week. :thumbsup:

[color=blue] :cheering: I did it… ! I know… it is something simple lol… but my FIRST KnitPicks order… am I excited? mmmmm hmmmm! YUP! :[/color]: :balloons:

lol…i am always putting stuff in my cart there and then not ordering. i would have ordered many times over by now i think if they had the color selection in WOTA as they do in some of the other yarns!

[color=blue]Well I usually like to be able to touch the yarn… I am like that when I buy fabric to quilt too… there is just something about being able to feel it… Strange I know! I almost clicked on the Denise needles… :shock: but I held back! How did I do that? lol [/color]

oooooooh i am the fabric department’s worst enemy…i can’t walk past without touching everything on the outside and if i get sucked in, well then i need to touch it all.

wonder where that comes from…something in childhood i would guess.

You have great will power. I always ‘shop around’ and buy things I don’t really need. When your package comes, you’ll see why it’s so much fun to order on line. Christmas every day. Uh oh, I need to get off this subject. I’m jonesing for a delivery and I have nothing on order. :frowning:

[color=blue]Yup I am bad… I am now looking all over the internet trying to find a delivery schedule hehehe… hmmmm how long will it take for it to come from Ohio… oh brother I have it bad. (Yay for the internet at work!) :hiding: [/color]

I have to say I LOVE tracking.

the Knitpicks Lace and Diamond bootees calls for? I may or may not order that same pattern, but I’d love to make my next bootee in that color yarn.

Thanks!
Ann

[color=blue]Hi Ann :waving: (with no “e” lol) I am hoping that the order comes tomorrow- :cheering: I ordered the book the pattern is in but not yarn that they recommended on the knitpiks site. The color options were not very baby like… and I really liked the color of the bootees shown in the picture. I will probably buy the yarn local, if you are still interested in the color and brand I would be happy to let you know :sunny: anne . [/color]
